Spider-Man Villains: Electro by Justin Zyduck

I've noticed that modern-age artists often think it's a good idea to get rid of Electro's starfish-mask. But like--there's dozens of superheroes and supervillains with electric/lightning bolt motifs on their costumes...but there's only ONE DUDE with a mask like that. Why would you fight it?

Tried to recapture the same face Ditko first drew on the character. The black around the eyes is something I saw in the Spider-Man Manga and always really liked.


  1. Nice work. Good use of black and I like how he retains the same features from close up to full figure shot.

  2. I love Electro's design. Its so cheesy and it says exactly what he does. That's what's so great about most of the early Spidey villains. All you have to do is look at their costumes and it tells you everything you need to know about them.

  3. Yeah definitely like the use of black in the drawing

  4. Great pick for Ketchup :) ! The face is excellent, having it next to the full body shot works very well. Great work.

  5. I really dig what you did with the colors there. Its a total assault on my eyes. The red and yellow are so saturated its like the only place for the viewer's eyes to rest is on those soft blue lightning bolts. Which is unconventional and almost unsettling. You managed to really capture the vibe of electro in this piece. Good work.
